Scroll Wheel Map Zoom

95

Description

For the right scroll wheel button you should be able to control the zoom in and out of the map if it is highlighted on the 17″ display.  It is pretty common to zoom in our out based on what you need to see and it would be quicker and safer to have this as an option on the wheel rather than only controlled on the screen.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

None.

Status

Update: While scroll zoom is not yet implemented, pinch to zoom was added in v5.8, which reduces the need for this feature.

Awesome idea.  Would improve safety!
Auto-zoom based on speed and nearness to navigation points would be good too.   Navigation points are aided by the speedometer display so perhaps that's less important, but speed-sensitive auto-zoom would save some manual fiddling.
Love this idea.  If auto zoom would work with direction up instead of always North up, it may do the same thing.  I would like the option to control zoom from the thumbwheel though.
Then you'd loose the call functionality of the right wheel which I find more useful when i can pinch or expand with two fingers.
The map response is so slow that I actually think this is a bad idea. If the map ever gets to be a reasonable speed then perhaps this should be revisited.
This is exactly what would increase the usability and safety of the SatNav.

I am surprised that such a logical and straightforward enhancement isn't  part of the car. This idea is over 2 years old and I missed this function after two weeks of owning an S.
Really would be nice if the scroll wheel was "active" to what ever app was up and running on the 17" screen. If it was the nav system, you could zoom, scroll, etc. If it was music, you could fast forward, mute, volume up & down.
Phone, you can scroll up & down the contact list, enter call / mute.
Personally, it is dangerous to take your eyes of the road to look at the screen, let alone your hand off the wheel, just to touch the screen!
It is a computer first and foremost, a car second.
